    Carbon Fibre Tikka T3 Rifles

    Supplied by your local Hunting n Fishing shops

    2.5 kg any calibre

    Just fill out the order form with your preferred ideas and 6 week wait

    Supply your own tikka if need be

    More info in the next H&F catalogue




    Ps. Changed weight to 2.5 kg as more realistic guesstimate

    Might as well start with something better.

    I would have thought dealing with a bottom metal replacement (so no magazine length issues ) and recoil lug also would have been on the list as an option within a Carbon stock option.

    Also a replacement heavier contour barrel and bedding - not just a gucci wrap would have been a better option especially for the Magnums. But at least its a step in the right direction

    Why not just buy a Sako?

    Umm, with a new rifle, near all of the flash options and a can you're looking close to $5500 anyway?

    I will go against the grain.

    There is obviously a market out there for this judging by the amount of T3 rifles, parts and re barrels/services being sold across the board.

    You could apply some of the above logic to anything we do but we have evolved, hence not every hunter is using an open sighted 303. People enjoy choice and this is just another choice out there.

    Apart from a couple of somewhat cheesy upgrade titles (IMHO) I would say well done, looks like a slick product.

    Cough. According to the mighty @Toby the Howa is the improved Sako.

    The T3 seems to be the 10/22 of centrefires. Good in principal, but just not quite there so get modified to be more suited to the user. But no matter how much money you throw at it it is still a T3.
